Join us in mapping Scotland’s Sustainable Development Goals action

At Scotland’s International Development Alliance (SIDA), we are committed to creating a fairer world, free from poverty, injustice, and environmental threats. As a membership organisation, we work tirelessly to influence government decisions on global justice issues and promote global citizenship. A key part of our mission is raising awareness about the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Adopted by the United Nations in 2015, the SDGs call for global action to end poverty, protect our planet, and ensure peace and prosperity for all by 2030. These 17 interconnected goals aim to balance social, economic, and environmental needs, focusing particularly on the most disadvantaged. They address issues such as poverty, hunger, lack of educational opportunities, climate change, and discrimination against women and girls. With 193 countries, including the United Kingdom, committed to these goals, the SDGs represent a unified global effort towards a brighter future for all.

We believe that local communities are essential to achieving these goals, and we know that incredible work on the SDGs is already happening across Scotland. To capture and understand these efforts, we are launching a project to map this action.

Our project focuses on community action, targeting potentially hard-to-reach demographics like locally managed action groups, diaspora communities, and grassroots activists and leaders. If you are part of a community-led or primarily voluntary group in Scotland working on the SDGs, we invite you to take our survey. For diaspora communities, we welcome input from both recent immigrants and those with deep generational ties to their heritage.

By completing the survey and sharing it through your community channels, you will help us better understand the grassroots actions taking place, their locations, and their impact. Your responses will enable us to identify the needs of groups like yours, explore new ways of providing support, and collaborate to create a more sustainable future.

The survey should only take about 4 minutes to complete, and your data will be protected in accordance with our data protection policy.

We appreciate your participation and look forward to learning more about the incredible work happening across Scotland to advance the Sustainable Development Goals. Together, we can make a difference!
